Default Aluminum Chassis

I've been out of 1/12/ for quite some time but what is the benefit of the aluminum chassis? Is it more from cg standpoint or flexibility?

Just the same as it is on the TC cars. different flex characteristics and weight down low. Which is typically better on high traction conditions on carpet. Having watched this car from conception to now, it has gotten to be very fast.

Cristian, I assume you'll give us a heads up here when the alloy chassis are available to order?

I am guessing this aluminum chassis plate is ideal for medium to high grip track conditions? How about low to medium traction? Carbon fiber would be the way to go?

Yes, I will post up when they become available. I am shooting for late next week.


On the chassis, I don't know what to tell you Edward. That is the normal train of thought for sedan, but I actually tested the Alloy chassis first on a new track layout, so the bite was low. The car seemed to generate a little more grip, and I think this was due to the fact that a further forward weight bias is created by the allow chassis. I think this is transferring more weight to the rear tires under acceleration. Either way, the chassis was super composed and never felt less hooked up than a carbon car.

Seen the car run up close last weekend. I honestly don't know how much of a difference the aluminum chassis made over the carbon one cause I only saw the aluminum one run. What I can tell you, though, is that the car ran very very well. Went into the corners flat, never looked upset. Plus I think that the front end on that car is a huge step above standard associated front end.

Martin there were 2 aluminum ones and 1 carbon one running as well. Jorge T was running the v2 with the regular front end on his but 3 of them had the dbl arm front end.

Brian, I must admit that I was focused on Christian's car as I was very curious about how it would handle, so I didn't pay much attention to the other cars on the track. One thing, though, I'm certain that the front suspension plays a big part in the car's handling. The car handled the bumps much better than anything I have seen before.
